New Oracle Zero-Day Bug

This Information Week article notes a potential critical flaw in the Oracle PL/SQL gateway:

“The flaw, which Litchfield called "critical," lies in the Oracle PLSQL Gateway, a component of several Oracle products, including Application Server and HTTP Server. The bug, he added, can be exploited by an attacker to grab complete control of an Oracle database server via the compromised Web server.

Litchfield, who has been criticized by Oracle in the past for releasing vulnerability information prior to patches being posted, said that the flaw was first reported to Oracle on Oct. 26, 2005. It's not uncommon for months to pass, and in some cases years, before Oracle patches a known bug.

"On November 7 NGS alerted NISCC to the problem. It was hoped that due to the severity of the problem that Oracle would release a fix or a workaround for this in the January 2006 Critical Patch Update. They failed to do so," wrote Litchfield in the Full Disclosure entry.”
